    Fuel Leak at Tank on '05 RT

    Afternoon Ron My suggestion is to talk to your dealer FIRST, to see how they want to handle it. Don't tell them about the other problems unless you need to, just tell then the thing leaks so bad that you can't ride it to them. I actually have installed a couple with dealer supplied parts then turned the old ones in afterwards (due to leaking so bad it couldn't be ridden)-- Really depends on your dealers attitude about it. Maybe show them the video of the leak as they are supposed to verify before replacing the pump assembly, if just cracked with smaller cracks they are supposed to only install that metal reinforcement ring (only replace pump assembly if large cracks or leaking)

    Cracks are there, I just was not looking for them before - I did not know where the leak was coming from or where to look. Could not get a good picture, but there are TWO crack exactly as you showed. Now..... What about removing the pump assembly, taking it to a dealer, with a big smile..... what do you reckon? They could get paid for the warranty work (at a fraction of the labor) and I could get my parts. Anybody ever try that one?

    2001 rt misfire

    Afternoon waynescamera We have to determine if you are feeling an actual engine mis-fire type miss or the typical early 1150 light throttle surge. (at light throttle, low to moderate RPM, the engine kind of speeds up & slows down at steady throttle with the motorcycle slightly lurching at each surge). An actual miss-fire can usually be heard in the exhaust. Until we positively determine if it is a mis-fire or the typical light throttle surge it will difficult to diagnose.

    Fuel Leak at Tank on '05 RT

    Afternoon Ron I really can't tell anything for sure from the video (are you absolutely sure there are no cracks?)-- That is basically what they look like when they leak from a crack. If someone had the quick disconnect disconnected without holding the trigger down throughout the entire removal & re-installation then it could have a nicked "O" ring. There should be a check valve down in the pump side of that quick disconnect so maybe try removing the upper part of the disconnect, then do a key-on & see if you can find the leakage area.

    2001 rt misfire

    Hi I have been out on a ride to try and think how to describe what I am feeling it’s not from the exhaust when you are driving along at a constant speed it kind of misses a beat then jerks forward making it not a smooth ride if you accelerate it does this smoothly

    Fuel Leak at Tank on '05 RT

    Looks like exactly WHERE you described, but I do not see any cracks and it looks like somehting internal leaking like an O-ring maybe? The slow-motion starts @ :24

    Fuel Leak at Tank on '05 RT

    Afternoon Ron No need to go through the trouble to document as there are plenty of those online already. Not sure what you mean by (remove top of tank) But, To remove fuel pump assembly-- Remove big ring nut, Lift off the fuel pump flange, if necessary pry it off, Open clip on bottom hose & disconnect the drain hose Disconnect plug on bottom of pump pass through, Remove fuel pump assembly from fuel tank. Usual place to find cracking__

    Fuel Leak at Tank on '05 RT

    My 07 RT developed a leak that looked much like the one you have. Turned out ot be a crack where the threads meet the fuel pump on the female half of that quick release connector. That's the second thing I would check. The first is that O-Ring on the male half.

    Fuel Leak at Tank on '05 RT

    Thanks D.R. That is what I was expecting, but interesting to think of any compensation - hell I just want the parts? I was planning on doing a bit more detail on the leak after watching it visibly coming out once the key was turned. How is that top of the tank removed? Gonna try to document as much as I can for the next guy.

    Fuel Leak at Tank on '05 RT

    Afternoon Don With your other problems it might be difficult to get BMW to do the fuel system recall, you might be able to force them to do it but depending on the dealer push-back it might not be easy. (it was a voluntary BMW recall) There is a section in the recall bulletin that allows BMW to compensate an owner if they need to have the parts replaced by an independent shop but how easy that is to work out is difficult to say. (you need to talk to your dealer about this) The FIRST thing that you need to do is clean the top of the fuel pump pass through then see EXACTLY where it is leaking from. The recall only covers cracking in the pump pass-through boss (where the high pressure line fitting screws in). Anything else is on you. There might be a time limitation on BMW doing anything also.

    Fuel Leak at Tank on '05 RT

    I found a thread on a similar topic and read thru it, I have talked to a couple people about it, and it seems that it is a recall item, but I have several questions perhaps some of you know the answers? Is this a warranty issue? Can I get a warranty repair given the OTHER issues ( I have been told a dealer won't touch it because of them) If I can't get the repair, how do I get the parts & do the repair myself? Has anyone here done this before? Any other advice is welcome, on this issue or the others I am facing. I have a limited budget for this bike, so taking it to non-dealer service is not an option. Thanks for the help & your sagery.

    2011 R1200GS w/90k miles: pass or play

    www.haulbikes.com has a good reputation, but I talked to a buddy yesterday who had tried to ship a bike to his son (from WA to MI) and they could only promise by the end of July. Maybe your nephew has a couple of free weeks coming up? Congrats on the purchase!

    09 r1200rt head helicoils

    This is what I am ended doing to resolve it - clean hole with .25 drill bit. - tap hole with tool provided on 6Mx1 helicoil repair kit which I purchased in autozone. - install 6 mm helicoil using install tool provided in kit. the rest was just following valve cover installation guide but I decided to not torque with tool but rather hand tight. Cross fingers but so far no oil leak

    June 06 1944

    Laura and I did a coach trip from Paris in 2014. Walked down to Omaha Beach. What an intense feeling while I was trying to imagine all the lives attempting to come ashore. We did visit the cemetery, albeit short. There was so much to see for a limited timed visit (coach trip had several stopping points of interest.) Very emotional.

    2011 R1200GS w/90k miles: pass or play

    So I ended up going with the '05 after all. I was able to get him to knock a few bucks off the price, and my brother and nephew went and looked at it. They looked it over pretty thoroughly and didn't see any evidence of leaks, corrosion or the like, just some scratches on the top case that I knew about. Nephew (a HD guy) got to ride it and commented that he could easily get used to the GS. He'd never ridden anything similar, but by the 2nd turn in the road was having difficulty making himself take the bike back! It's not an Adventure but the adventure begins for me now, getting the bike from FL to NM. I'm working full-time for the census so no off-time till all the counting is done. Guess I'll see how much uShip will cost. Brother is sending more pics today so I'll post a few of those, these are from the ad.

    The Arno Effect

    Great story. You should try it on the new 1250 RT, with a passenger. A thrill for both, to say the least. Laura was surprised when I did something similar. I was already at interstate speeds and decided to pass slower traffic in the right lane, which was ending. I only dropped down to 5th. I had no doubt that I could safely pass, but Laura clinched a little. I had it in Road mode. Your kilometers may vary.
